Come and treat your senses to a weekend of funky and fantastic music, art and crafts in Longview. Admission is by donation and the gate receipts will be donated to local causes and other local charitable service groups still to be announced. Please donate what you can afford to give and know that your donation is going to a worthy cause. Bring the family out for a fun weekend in the park listening to some great live music. This will be the 7th annual festival which originated through Eva Levesque and her crew. The idea arose while sitting around the kitchen table drinking coffee one afternoon and has grown into this amazing festival fondly called “Longstock” by its organizers. Eva diligently searches out fantastic Alberta talent for the music-fest and crafters and Rick Smith does the same with our talented Alberta artists.

Saturday: 12 to 9pm

Sunday: 12 to 7pm

There will be a Beer tent and the usual hamburger and hotdog munchies, t-shirt sales and featured artists CD’s for sale.

Please contact Festival Organizer Eva Levesque at 403-558-3967 if you would like to volunteer to help out at the Festival. Volunteers make this festival possible and will be organized in 2 hour shifts, so you will still have plenty of time to have fun and listen to some great music.

If your business has an advertising banner you wish to have displayed in the park during the Festival, we will gladly hang it for you for a donation of $50. You supply the banner, we’ll supply the prominent spot to hang it. Last year we estimated at least 1000 people went through the park throughout the weekend, so many eyes will see your ‘brand’. Please contact Eva Levesque at 403-558-3967 if you wish to make a corporate donation to support the operation of ‘this little festival that could’.
